"This was a very special vacation for my family as my husband and I were renewing our wedding vows with our 3 children and their spouses. We read all the reviews before booking and looked at the photos but it's always hard to tell until you arrive.
But from start to finish, this was wonderful. We called ahead per instructions and we were met by Jeanette, one of the owners, who gave us a tour showing us her beautiful home. The space was amazing. There was coffee, tea, half and half and a bottle of red and white to start us off as well as some snacks. The kitchen is a chef's dream. It is set up perfectly with beautiful countertops and cabinets and it's huge. Then the wall in pantry was fully stocked with tons of spices and supplies. There is every gadget imaginable as well as pots and pans, a ton of wine glasses, a fantastic grill and paper supplies. Every time we opened another drawer, we would find something to cook with. My son is a professional chef and he cooked us dinner our last night and said it was a perfect layout.
Now to bedrooms - There were 8 of us and we spread out and used the downstairs "apartment" and the attached cottage apartment both of which had their own full baths. The downstairs has a pool table and a big screen TV with a supply of movies. The cottage has its own separate entrance. We used two of the three upstairs bedrooms. Every couple had their own bath and tons of space. Each room had a huge closet, two fluffy bathrobes and a large supply of towels. One of my favorite parts of the house though, was the views. This is a treed lot with deer, wild turkeys, humming birds and other fauna. You can see wineries from the huge outdoor patio and from the dining room and from the master bedroom. WOW!!
I would be remiss if I didn't end by thanking both Dave and Jeanette for their hospitality. They offered to help with recommendations on wineries and restaurants. Since we knew where we wanted to go (we have a huge wine cellar with over 600 bottles), and where we wanted to eat, we mistakenly waited too long to take them up on the offer. They know the area and are extremely helpful and responsive. I wish we had checked in with them first even though we had great meals.
The only qualifier I would make is that you should plan to a) spent most of your time in Sonoma vs. Napa and b) spend some time at the house relaxing and enjoying it. We didn't use the fireplaces or the hot tub due to lack of time."

"This is truly my FAVORITE go-to rental in wine country. I've rented Star West a handful of times for intimate women's retreat weekends and it's a total dream! There is nowhere better in the area.
The home: Amenties abound. Kitchen stocked. Gorgeous details everywhere making this feel like an elegant home rather than a rental.
The location: Gorgous outdoors and indoors. Fire pit, hot tub, outdoors eating space, and even outdoor beds if you want! There are trails for hiking and it's nestled on top of a hill for perfect seclusion!
The hosts: Suzy & Rik are the most gracious, giving hosts - always taking care of details and special requests. You can tell how much they care about their home and sharing the space lovingly.
Seriously...this is just my favorite place for a women's getaway. The space is infused with such incredible heart and energy. I so highly recommend Star West! It's just perfect."
